#bioSnackySprouts with @AVogel_ca

Did you know Canada..  we are on Day 2 of a sprouting challenge!  A.Vogel has challenged us to grow some sprouts over a 10 day period using their classic bioSnacky 3-tier sprouter.



The older boys each picked a seed and Mom got to pick one too.  So we are growing..

Mung Bean - Green soy seed with mild and aromatic taste. Mung bean sprouts contain vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B12 and C, plenty of vitamin E as well as iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus.
Fitness Mix - Mix of wheat seeds, mung beans and radish. This unique mix provides a subtle, mildly piquant taste which adds interest to your meals.
Little Radish - Little Radish sprouts have a strong and spicy flavour. They contain vitamins A, B1, B2 and C as well as numerous minerals.



So far the Mung Bean is in the lead, already sprouting on day 2!

The set up was very easy and an enjoyable family project.  You just rinse out the tiers, confirm the red drain is in place, then rinse your seeds (the amount of seeds you add per tray is listed on the seed package), add the seeds to the tray and you are good to go!  You water your seeds right away and it's actually really fun to water them, because you add your water to the top tier and it drains all the way to the bottom leaving just enough water in each tier for your sprouts to grow!  You empty the bottom drainage with the excess water and that's it!

I LOVE how quickly you have action as you can see from our Mung Bean's, this makes it really exciting for the boys and we will be adding out sprouts to sandwiches, salads, stir frys and more in no time!  Being able to grow 3 different sprouts at once in one compact unit gives you enough sprouts for so many different dishes or even combined into one!

Stay tuned next week for an update and follow hashtag #bioSnackySprouts for our daily updates along with others doing the challenge!

  2. Are you snacking on these already? This is the perfect contraption for children! Pea tendrils or shoots can be next! I think I sent you a link via twitter about The Canadian Food Experience Project. Did you get it? Just google it. Would love you to participate.
